Japan is a modern country that still retains plenty of its mystical oriental charm and something of an enigma to people in the Western world.
Japanese culture is alive and cannot be ignored, from the etiquette demanded in social situations, to the minimalist décor behind rice paper screens, and the many exotic pleasures of this country make a visit to Japan a fascinating experience.
